#SaveOnSensitiveSkincare with Simple and Walgreens

Disclosure: Post sponsored by Mirum but all opinions are my own. Please see below for additional disclosure.

Before you know it, summer will be here. I mean, it’s just about Memorial Day weekend, which is the official kick off of the season so get that BBQ started! And I don’t know about you but I like to simplify things as soon as it starts to get hot, like I move the family from one night to two nights of not turning on the stove, laundry is done every Monday eve instead of Saturday afternoon, and the cool basement TV room opens up for the kids and their friends to hang out in.

Also part of this paring down is the streamlining my sensitive skincare routine by incorporating products from the Simple brand I pick up at Walgreens. I love that they put their money ingredients where their mouth is, as in, Simple keeps it … simple! If you are an ingredient reader like I am, you’ll see that what they put inside the products is just as important as what they’re leaving out, like annoying artificial perfumes, harsh chemicals, or dyes. Summer is simple, so shouldn’t your skin care routine be too?

Collosol Eau de Lait

I don’t know that last time I smelled a really French product. As in one that transports me back. And this COLLOSOL Eau de Lait ($18/3.4oz, $28/8.5oz, $38/13.5oz @, does just that. It brings me back to my Aunt’s house just outside of Paris and when I used to visit as a child every year, then, quite frequently as a teen (it was my father’s answer of trying to tame me).

Created in Paris in the 1950s, this milky water cleanser and makeup remover has become a cult favorite of those in the know, and now I’m one of them!

#GlowUp with Olay Cleansing Infusions

Disclosure: Post sponsored by Olay but all opinions are my own. Please see below for additional disclosure.

You know when you go to a summer party and you see that one girl that just seems to have it all together? She has on the right summery dress, the hair that falls perfectly into place, and they just have that glow about them? Well, Olay Cleansing Infusions wants to help you be that girl at your next outing.


I don't know about you but summer is my favorite fashion season and as soon as we have a day that hits 80 degrees, all my cute dresses come out, especially the ones with the bold prints! I have this one I bought in the dead of winter that I've been dying to wear and I finally did this past weekend. It's a green and white polka dot dress and was perfect for a Kentucky Derby party I attended.

And to get my glow on, I used Olay Cleansing Infusion Hydrating Glow Body Wash (made with deep sea kelp) and Olay Cleansing Infusion Hydrating Glow Facial Cleanser (this one contains deep sea kelp and aloe extract). Both the facial cleanser and the body wash come in Crushed Ginger with Citrus Extract, too!

Say Yes to Yes To Superblueberries

This YES TO SUPERBLUEBERRIES Recharging Greek Yogurt & Probiotic 3-in-1 Mask, Scrub & Cleanser ($15.99/4oz @ is made especially stressed skin, so basically everyone! I love that this is a multi-purpose face product in that you can use it as a mask (contains the mud Bentonite), an exfoliator (it contains blueberry fruit extract and lactic acids), and a straight up face cleanser.

This one dries down almost all the way and it really makes my skin feel nice and soft, which doesn’t happen with many cleansers like this.

#FeeltheWhip with Olay Regenerist Whip SPF 25

Disclosure: Post sponsored by Olay but all opinions are my own.

If there’s one thing I have learned from this beauty journey over the past 18+ years of blogging is the importance of wearing SPF. I mean, it’s the #1 way to prevent wrinkles! And I am really loyal to putting it on in the morning. My routine is: get out of bed, use the toilet, brush my teeth, wash my hands and splash cool water on my face. Then, I apply SPF! I don’t leave the house without it on; in fact, on days when I’m not even leaving the house, I put it on as the sun still shines into windows.

So I was quite excited when I heard about Olay Regenerist Whip SPF 25 available at Target. I’ve tried their regular Whip and am a fan and now I will be adding this one to my daytime regimen.

EpiCeram-L Lip Care

I think there is actually one product we have all tried many versions of. Can you guess what it is? Lip balm! How many do you own or have you tried over the years? I have probably used about 15 different types and each time I think I might have found “the one.”

So have I this time? Click below to find out!

Seriously Fab Zinc It Over

Here's a product that I've just been waiting to come out! Here's the issue - you put on your moisturizer, sunscreen and then face of makeup. About 2 hours goes by. Are you reapplying sunscreen as recommended? For me, no, and I've tweeted about this issue before and how it puts me in a bind. I want to protect my skin from the sun but at the same time don't want to mess up my makeup. But now we’ve got the answer ...

Give #WinterSkinProblems the Boot with Olay

This post is sponsored by Olay. All opinions expressed are my own.

Each winter things take a drastic change in my house. The temps have dropped so I'm living with my humidifier on blast in my winter jammies snuggled under the heating blanket when I can. In addition to central heating zapping skin of moisture, the overall cold air outside doesn't help either. I am just constantly looking to boost my skin's moisture content! So each season I evaluate my skin care routine to see what I'll be using, and this season's moisturizer is the new Olay Regenerist Whip. It's the perfect time of year to use it as it's made just lower temperatures, like now.

How confusing is the average skin care aisle? In this case, having choices is not so great. So how do you make a decision on what product/s to try for your skin? TV advertising? Magazines? Blogs? You want to look your best for the selfies and group pics that are inevitable since we all have cameras on our phones these days, right? Taking care of your skin is uber important in 2018!
